There is no Shyriath but Shyriath, and he is Shyriath.
He has adopted various surnames over the years, but most consistently he is known as Shyriath Farstrider; for some time previously he was Shyriath Bukolos. Presumably, like all of us, he is also Namvari. When not writing, reading, arting, or playing computer games, Shyriath works as a low-level computer monkey working for the Maryland state government in exchange for money.
He entered into the sector in the first half of 2003, and has intermittently disappeared since then only to return; it could be said that micronationalism is his drug habit which he has never been able to kick. He joined Shireroth initially and remained with it for many years, becoming Kaiser on three occasions (as Mors IV Nerrolar, B'caw I, and then as Mors IV: The Sequel). He played a critical role in the founding of Minarboria, having departed Shireroth in January 2017 to focus on it; it could be argued that his disappearance later that year played an equally critical role in Minarboria's collapse.
Having most lately returned in August 2018, he is currently participating in Kalgachia and is also fiddling around with his own side project, Çeridgul. Because he gots alien dragons and ain't no one gonna stop him.
